Eight women, eight stories

Just found this — a really nice collection of stories from Will Yurman of The Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle, from October 2006:

My Body Myself

First, the subject matter is stuff women think about all the time, starting at an early age. The audio interviews are great, well edited, and just so personal … wonderful.

Second, the photography is really cool. It’s all model shots, wholly self-conscious. But it’s a blend of behind-the-scenes and “the scene” all superimposed. Such a creative approach. I admire photojournalists like Will more than I can say.

I e-mailed Will with my compliments and asked him some questions. He did everything you see and hear in this package — photography, lighting, audio interviews and the Flash (it’s not Soundslides; correction: it uses the Soundslides Component for Flash). When I asked him how he got such candid interviews, he replied: “I grew up with three older sisters and my mom — so maybe that helped.”
